This set of thirty powerful short stories takes the readers on a journey from the absurd to the sublimely sensitive, from the commonplace to the obscure and from the depths of extreme sorrow to the heights of humour. It explores the boundaries of imagination and holds the attention of readers with unusual storylines, tight and subtle language and a unique narrative style. This is a book for the reader who is willing to be challenged and provoked on practically every issue of emotive significance – the soul, the meaning of time, love, ghosts, loneliness, death, the future, obsessions and music.

What happens when you sleep? Who consumes music to live? Is poetry being outsourced to a caller in Bangalore? Are you being watched every second?

Read a story a day from this collection. Liberate yourself.

Vasudev Murthy

Vasudev Murthy has authored books on subjects as varied as music and business management, and articles that dwell on history, sociology, the occult, philosophy and the like. A prolific writer of short stories, Murthy draws on the rich and colourful tapestry of his collective experiences to paint brilliant word pictures of life and its vagaries and its myriad hues that in the haste of living we often tend to overlook. When he is not writing or traveling to remote parts of the world or playing the violin or communing with his dogs, Vasudev is a management consultant and a Guest Faculty at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore.
